Tony Geraci, executive director of child nutrition for Memphis City (Tenn.) Schools, says he prefers a centralized kitchen, rather than cooking on-site at schools. Geraci, a chef from New Orleans, said the approach gives him more oversight over food quality and nutrition. Beginning next month, he plans to limit consumption of flavored milk to one meal per day and is in the process of developing a system for purchasing school food from local farms.
